Fairfax, VA

ActioNet Inc. announced today that it has been named to Deloitte & Touche’s prestigious “Technology Fast 50” Program for the Virginia area, a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in the area. Rankings are based on the percentage of growth in fiscal year revenues from 1998-2002 (five-year period).

To have achieved such success the first year ActioNet, Inc., was eligible for the award is a remarkable feat, and President & CEO Ashley W. Chen attributes the company’s remarkable 4406% revenue growth from 1998 – 2002 to our ability to deliver value to the customer time and time again. Chen said, “As a small business, we go the extra mile to get the job done. Our foundation is the quality of our people and the commitment they bring to our organization and to our customers.”

Gary Tabach, Director & Partner in Charge, Technology, Media & Telecommunications, Deloitte & Touche said, “To rank on the Deloitte and Touche Technology Fast 50, companies must have phenomenal revenue growth over five years. ActioNet has proven to be one of the fast-growth success stories in Virginia, and we applaud their success and vision.”

ActioNet, Inc.’s increase in revenues of 4406% from 1998 to 2002 resulted in a 5th place ranking overall in the Virginia Technology Fast 50. To qualify for the Technology Fast 50, companies must have had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in 1998 and $1,000,000 in 2002, must be public or private companies headquartered in Virginia, and be “technology companies” defined as owning proprietary technology that contributes to a significant portion of the company’s operating revenues or devoting a high percentage of revenue to research and development of technology.
